Always impressed with the reasonable wait times and the tenderness of their barbequed meals. Great place for taking the wife shopping, combined with a quick meal on the way to shopping, done with shopping or waiting while allowing the wife to shop at her leisure....More

We visit from NJ and I wish we had Bbq like this. Not inexpensive but certainly worth it. Ribs and brisket sensational. The bark on the brisket is special. Real treat for us Yankees

We had a brisket sandwich. The meat still had a lot of fat on it. After we removed the excessive fat we had about half of the meat left in the sandwich.More

Hello John, I apologize on 2 points, one for the slow response to this review, and secondly for the poor eating experience. I have our lead trainer scheduled to visit the location shortly and review the recipe execution. Looks like we have some definite room...More

Despite the unusual setting, location. it's a great place. The smell is wonderful unless the sushi is out next door that day. The brisket is as good as it smeills

I have had the brisket, which is very good, but we had ribs today. Yum. Moist, tender, and just the right amount of smoke. A nice little restaurant tucked in the grocery store, but not unattractive. This restaurant even has a private room!
